Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

and...

when I find myself there, I may never look back again.



I'm gonna follow my heart!

And wherever that lands me then so be it!!! To hell with anything else, I have to follow my heart and that’s all that matters. If I’m gonna live a life of misery and blah-ness, then die one day…to hell with that!



but what if...

my heart betrays me? where do i go then?



To follow my heart...

means to abandon all fears, and to throw caution to the wind.

They always tell you to follow your heart, but they don’t really mean that. The moment you start to follow your heart, they try to pull the brakes on it…have you lost your mind?

Perhaps I had to! In order to follow my heart!!!



Heart of the World

“The Heart Of The World”

Tin cans on rattlin’ pavement
Confetti scattered everywhere
She falls asleep in the seat beside me
Rice caught up in her hair
I don’t mind it, I keep drivin’,
Flying on these wheels of steel
A bit anxious, a bit nervous
The moment’s all that we can feel

If oil is the soul of the engine
And wine is the drink of the Gods
Forgiveness the road to redemption
Faith can still beat the odds
We’re meant to be baby hold on to me
You’ll never not be my girl
‘Cause love is the heart of the world

I leave him sleepin’ as I rise early
Always up before the dawn
The house is dark, but I see clearly
Kettle sings a morning song
The bacon’s frying, babies crying
I soak up the sights and sounds
Minutes turn to days and I wish that I could slow it down

If grease is the soul of the kitchen
And coffee the drink of the Gods
Routine too perfect to mention
Time is a thief I would rob
We’re meant to be baby hold onto me
I’ll never not be your girl
‘Cause love is the heart of the world

Oh, and hope is soul of the dreamer
And heaven is the home of my God
It only takes one true believer
To believe you can still beat the odds

We’re meant to be baby hold onto me
You’ll never not be my girl (I’ll never not be your girl)
‘Cause love is the heart, love is the heart,
Love is the heart of the world

Heart of the World by Lady Antebellum
